Marc Jacobs’s letter to New York Post journalist

In the past month we saw an extreme article about Marc Jacobs personal, professional and financial status on New York Post, titled “What’s wrong with Marc Jacobs? Mystery of business struggles, bizarre behaviour”, in which also the writer notes the lack of relevance and impact of the eponymous firm in the current industry scenario.

The article was written by Maureen Callahan, whom Jacobs faced both directly and publicly in a letter that opens with the line: “Girl, I think I understand your pain. You’re a sick woman. It must be such a sad, unfulfilling and lonely existence to get paid for ‘writing’ (I use the term loosely) an article put together from out of context information”.

The designer continues: “I can’t even imagine your suffering having made a life and name working for what has to be the world’s worst, trashiest, and most irresponsible of ‘newspapers’ (LOL)!. I can imagine the powerful and fulfilling feeling you must feel with each piece you ‘write’ that helps yourself and your readers feel better about their lives by putting down others who are so fortunate as to have been blessed with a genuine passion for creation.”

“Those creative individuals who like everyone else has feelings, a sexual appetite, ‘issues’, character defects, and professional ups and downs,” Jacobs mentioned in reply to the journalist’s claims regarding the designer’s supposed drug addiction and habit for hiring prostitutes, a statement sustained by the executive Robert Duffy.

“If you were a real writer and not the parasite feeding off of the successes and failures of others I wouldn’t bother writing my thoughts here. I do feel sorry for you”, says Jacobs to Callahan, questioning her ability to produce substantial articles instead of start sensationalist rumors taking advantage of the designer’s losing streak that’s going on in the press.

Jacobs finishes the letter: “Please know you are in my prayers, I hope you will someday find something, somewhere that gives you pleasure…and not at another’s expense. Should that moment happen for you, please don’t thank me. I only wish the best for everyone. Even you. Sincerely and disrespectfully, Marc (Jacobs). #lethimwhoiswithoutsincastthefirststone #youwannacomeforme?”
